Info Regarding HOPE GPA Calculation
A student's High School HOPE Scholarship GPA is not the same as his or her high school GPA. The major difference in the two calculations is that the High School HOPE Scholarship GPA includes only grades earned in the core subjects of English, mathematics, science, social studies, and foreign language.
Georgia Department of Education’s (GA DoE) high school core and foreign language courses that begin with the following prefixes will be included in the HOPE GPA calculation: 23 (English), 26 (Life Sciences), 27 (Mathematics), 40 (Physical Sciences), 45 (Social Sciences), 60-64, 66 (Foreign Language). There are some specific courses, as indicated on GA DoE’s Fourth Science List, that may also be included in the HOPE GPA calculation.
